Cicada Flavor

Sparky's Homemade Ice Cream decided to take advantage of the appearance of cicadas this year. They made a half batch of what they thought would be a little ordered novelty, cicada flavored ice cream. Word leaked and the stuff sold out the day before it was even supposed to be offered. Although the interest and demand is still high, due to the health department's suggestion to discontinue the flavor, it will no longer be sold. Awww, that is too bad.

I'm glad Big Brother stepped in and stopped this before people started dieing (or worse)! People aren't supposed to eat locusts, those are saved for Jesus!

Cicadas are supposed to be quite edible and tasty. They even sell them at fairs and such. But I will never know first hand because it would take an act of God to get one of those ugly disgusting things past my lips.

I do have a stepson who ate them when they emerged. He was crazy in other ways too.

Psst, @Expat, that was John the Baptist that ate locusts.

Cockroach cluster and anthrax ripple sound like good mother in law gifts.
